Message Subject Balcones Fault Line in Texas

Post Content
And I found this interesting post on a past thread here at GLP:

The are three faults that run together, in a point, about a quarter mile north of Williams Square, in Irving. I used to have a map from the USGS but it's been removed on purpose.
The faults are The Quachita Thrust Front, The Balcones Fault, and the East Texas Uplift.

When the 5+ event struck Alpine, Tx in 1995, we felt it in Irving, as I lived and was at work that night. Though these have never been very active, I expect they soon will be much more so.

Know that Downtown Dallas, from Central Expressway to Stemmons on the west to just above downtown to 20 on the south or almost that far sit on a sinkhole.

When an event over six strikes there, the limestone bedrock will fracture and the area will sink apporx. 250 feet straight down.

1983. I was a Junior @ MacArthur HS in Irving, TX. I was in Government class in the afternoon and for just a second it felt like the room swayed. Next thing we know, we are looking at the World History class in the room next to ours. Most of the brick wall and fallen down. Thankfully, there were no students sitting that close to the wall on either side. Surprised the heck out of me and they said it was only a 3+ but it was shallow-ish.
